Hello my lovelies 🙂
I hope you’ve all been having fantastic weekends, I know I have!
I started the day with a long lie in (almost till 11am shock horror!) as I didn’t manage to get to sleep till gone 3am…
But the day picked up and today has definitely been a day of food.
How delicious does that look? Breakfast was a cinnamon raisin bagel topped with raspberry jam and served with a side of fresh raspberries which my wonderful parents bought especially for me :-). I’ve really missed fresh berries, although I’m quite pleased with my frozen ones.
This morning I spent some time reading the introduction (it’s a really really long one!) to Henry IV Part 1. I still can’t decide whether I like Shakespeare’s History plays. I’ve been finding the lectures really interesting but on reading each one so far I’ve been finding the texts a little dull. I definitely prefer the tragedies and comedies at any rate!
Lunch was something I haven’t had in an incredibly long time, a roast dinner 🙂
Finished with pretty much my favourite dessert of the season:
Apple crumble with a little natural yogurt. I helped my mum make it in the morning – I loved being able to cook with her. My mum is my main cooking inspiration, she used to get me to cook with her when I was little and she taught me to cook in the last couple of years 🙂
The afternoon was spent doing some more reading and then some relaxing with my kitty on my lap. I’ve missed Poppy’s company, she’s so affectionate and she used to always come and sit with me whenever I was in my room.
Earlier I decided I wanted to bake but as it was quite close to dinner I figured there wasn’t much point making something sweet, it wouldn’t get eaten so I went with savory. I made some cheese straws:
What’s your autumnal (fall) food, sweet and savory?
